Okimot Lodge sits along the shores of Tomiko Lake. The lodge sits 40 miles northwest of North Bay and offers fishing for Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, and Largemouth Bass.

Guests are housed in a number of modern cabins that sit right on the sandy beach. Cabins include Propane BBQ, fire pit, and picnic tables. Some cabins have TV and VCR. There is a full kitchen, dining area, sitting area, and sleeping room for up to 8 people. Expect clean and comfortable cabins with new beds, and great views of the lake.

Fishing with Okimot Lodge

Guests fish from pontoon boats with 25 hp motors or from 14-foot boats with 9.9 HP motors. Boats come with gas, bait, depth finder, life jackets, landing nets, and a map of the lake.

The primary fish that guests target is the Walleye. These fish are fun to catch, good to eat, and plentiful. If you are new to Walleye fishing, then look for them in a variety of places. If the Lake is cold, they will be near the edges either in the weedy beds or near a point of rock in the quieter bays. In the hot summer months, you can find them in the deeper water where the shore starts to slope at a greater angle. They like live bait such as crawdads, insects, and minnows.

The Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass tend to follow the smaller fish. Look for those around islands, near underwater structures and near fast moving water.

The lake also holds Northern Pike and these are super fun fish to target. Northern Pike get quite large, so 20-40 inches is good sized. They also fight by leaping out of the water and displaying their aggression. Once you take on a Northern Pike, they will quickly become your favorite fish. They are very similar to tackling a large Salmon.

Overall, expect a nice lodge with clean cabins, plenty of activities, and outstanding fishing.
